Alright, well... it is time to begin planning for the Ford Nationals!!!

The event will be the first weekend in June again, and the turnout is going to be great!! The event officially runs June 3-5, 2016, and I know of some (myself included) who are arriving Thursday, June 2.


The event link is here: Carlisle Ford Nationals | Collector Car Show and Swap Meet | Carlisle, PA

Do not forget about the discounts available to those registering before December 31, 2015 11:59P ET!!!

On Facebook? Here is the link to my page promoting this event! https://www.facebook.com/events/1660872670817559/

Just talked to Betsy and got the holiday discount 20% percent. $44 until the end of the month I believe.


REMEMBER WHATEVER TAURUS YOU HAVE REGISTER AS TAURUS SHO....Otherwise they will park you with Ford Full Size
Also mention Taurus Car Club America (TCCA) more membership we show better chances of getting a tent.

I believe Carlisle Events will issue refunds until sometime early May. With that said they are having winter special of %20 discount for Showfield.

$55 Showfield all three days. That is on field parking with unrestricted entry/exit privileges. $44 after the %20 discount until December 31. If even remotely thinking about it order the passes and if need to cancel later. Mention TCCA the more we get entered the better chance of a club tent and possibly better parking area. I just received my receipt yesterday.

I won't do the whole weekend, but I could come down one day early and stay an overnight... and do the parade. Is that on a Saturday evening, typically, or does the parade fall another night?

Parade is usually Saturday evening around 1830 form up anytime after around 1700 in the parking lot near the fire station. Police Escort, two abreast, and legal on street parking.

Just scanning Ford Website so here goes.


2016 Taurus are starting to show available or at least Window Stickers Generated and possible en-route to dealers. My local dealer shows 33 2016 models in inventory. The reason I bring this up is although no major design changes the 2016 Changes from My Ford Touch to SYNC Gen 3 which early reports show a major promise in reliability and ease of use. Deep Impact Blue has been replaced by Blue Jean and Tuxedo Black is now called Shadow Black. A 2016 Taurus would be a good addition to Ford Nationals for 2016


This is my local dealers current inventory. I didn't check all 33 models but window stickers of the ones I did view all showed 12/15 Build dates.

WEEKLY BUMP: DONT FORGET REGISTER AS TAURUS SHO Regardless of model If you don't register as SHO they will assign you parking in "Full Size" with Crown Victoria's and Grand Marquis. ALSO Don't forget to designate TCCA as club sponsor, more the better towards the club tent......trust me from previous events.....We WILL want a tent to help with shade.

For those of you worrying about registering as SHO They are not checking VINS..... your good. I have been trying every year on the post event survey to have a Taurus SHO and Regular Taurus but no luck so they are forcing us to register as SHO.

Wats this carlisle meet im from lancaster pa i wanna get involved wanna meet some fellow bull owners
It is the Ford Nationals at Carlisle, there is every Ford you could ever want to see...and the Taurus has it's own area, so you can park on the infield with other Taurus owners...I tell everyone to register with Liberty SHO Club because if we get 25 people registered, we will get a tent, which is nice if it is sunny or rainy.

Here is the website to register: http://store.carlisleevents.com/SearchResults.asp?Cat=24

It is a really nice time and a chance to meet some great Taurus folks!
